ASFF Round-Up: 10 November

As the weekend events for the festival are in full swing, with VR, Short, Feature and Immersive films playing out across 15 venues, Saturday also marks the last day of ASFF’s industry session at York St John University with speakers from Pinewood, Somewhere Else, The Association of Camera Operators, Brothers Mcleod, Women in Film & TV and Mick Audsley. 

Home to some of the most successful features of the past 80 years, Pinewood Studios have become synonymous with world class international productions. Sound and Foley editors Jemma Riley-Tolch (Tomb Raider, Mute) and Lilly Blazewicz (Wonder Woman, Annihilation) from Pinewood’s audio post team join ASFF to discuss the importance of combined sound elements in crafting the sensory experience of cinema. (11.00-12.00). Afterwards, a panel of programmers from Aesthetica Short Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, London Short Film Festival, Underwire and Sheffield Doc/Fest let down their guard to answer any questions you might have about the complex world of film curation. This is an ideal opportunity to find out about the selection process, discover what makes an eye-catching film and how to succeed in a competitive and highly subjective marketplace. (12.00-13.00)

Saturday is also the busiest day for Guest Programmes, with Scottish Documentary Institute, Iris Prize, British Urban Film Festival, Underwire and ASFF winners. Topics for these include Women and Power, Redressing the Balance and Defining Gay Cinema. Northern Film School present a screening and panel on Creativity and Risk (York Theatre Royal, 17.00-19.00), and Pitching Sessions continue at York St John with BFI, Scottish Documentary Institute and iFeatures.
